Michelle Obama Hula-Hoops for Healthy Kids

Michelle Obama Hula-Hoops for Healthy Kids

First Lady Michelle Obama takes part in a number of athletic activities, including Hula-Hooping, on the White House’s South Lawn yesterday to promote physical fitness at the Healthy Kids Fair on Wednesday (October 21).

The Washington Post reported that Michelle completed 142 Hula-Hoop hip swivels but had slightly less luck with double dutch jump rope.

The First Lady also told kids about her favorite food: “There’s nothing that the first family loves more than a good burger, right?” Michelle said. “And look, my favorite food in the whole wide world are french fries. I love them. Dearly. Deeply. I have a good relationship with french fries and I would eat them every single day if I could.”

“I tell my girls this: If you’re getting the right foods for most of the time, then when it’s time to have cake and french fries on those special occasions, then you balance it out.”

  • Jennifer

    She looks like James Brown.

  • Frida

    She’s the coolest first lady ever!

  • shoes4life

    I love, love, love Michelle and the whole Obama family. I like the fact that Michelle is not too above actually getting involved and doing an active activity. She don’t stand on the sidelines watching others demonstrate. She and her husband get right in there with everyone else and that is something we have not seen in the White House with a first lady or president. It is quite refreshing.

    I find them approachable and not sufferable bores. Bill Clinton was another who I thought was an approachable and semi-outgoing president but Hillary did not seem so approachable.

    get rid of that belt Michelle and tell your fashion selector to stop with those belts!

  • liverwurst

    awkward looking outfit.

  • Sad

    Maybe her husband needs to shut his mouth and keep the promises he made. Liberal going Republican. Watch FOX news, they tell the straight truth. I will never endorse Obama again, would a waffling loser.

  • coco

    Can she do a back flip? What about a hand stand?
    I agree the belt must go in trash.

  • Shiolo

    Finally a real first lady in a real unpretentious world..waoh what a fresh of breath air !!! Viva Michelle

  • julie

    love Michelle, so classy, love her husband also, Obama has to clean up the mess bush left behind, it’s going to take decades, that’s what Obama already stated, it’s a big mess, it’s going to take a lot of time, bush did a number on this country.

  • Me!

    Love Michelle as well:-)
    I agree with many of the posters that the belts got to go! They are never situated at her waist, but sit right underneath her chest, which just looks wrong.
    Other than that, she’s a cool first lady.

  • rhonda

    good job, please Michelle, play jump rope, all day. Just don’t shut down DC to go buy cabbage and a dozen eggs.

  • wtf

    she needs to wear spanx

  • rhonda

    @Shiolo:

    its more like Barnum and Bailey, but everyone loves the circus!

    class is in the eye of the beholder! I think she looks totally ridiculous out there on the South Lawn of the WH in her spiked belt and a hula hoop!

  • Shiolo

    @Rhonda – you are a shallow human being ..you would rather sit there and adore known for nothing celebrities holding their poodles with nothing to show . She has a great message for children and the over so obese USA .. I say again VIVA MITCHELL and if you do not like her ..too bad , I do and a million others …and what has wadrobe got to do with it – again typical Americans, always shallow minded ….she was not dressing to attend an Opera and what she chooses to wear she does not give a damn about your opinion ..love love her.. Class? Whatever you mean by that lol again another American confusion of class and sounding ridiculous !!

  • rhonda

    You love fat ugly women! Ok, to each their own. Bet you love Rosie too!

  • Jacob

    Michelle’s awesome. So real and down to earth and not some snob and shut in housewife.

  • Jacob

    @Alex:

    haha! It looks like it

  • Sarah

    @rhonda:

    LOL. You’re so obsessed with the Obama’s. Its sad honey.

  • Abbie

    Michelle looks like she’s having fun being First Lady. Good on her. Laura was sweet but she was AWOL for 8 years. She never took on any causes with any real effort.

  • Abbie

    @rhonda:

    You sound like a complete snob. She’s an active woman, do you want her sitting in a rocking chair all day. You probably think sandals and jewelery are obscene and ungodly. Its 2009 grandma! Deal with it.

  • lissa

    So is MO supposed to be the example of healthy lifestyle? She’s well known for her “room service” and her “burger runs” I don’t think she is the best US can use as example of healthy life style.

    She’s better dressed for hula hoops than she usually is to meet world leaders. Whats up with those silly bows and belts!

  • heidi

    I love Mrs. Obama she seems like such a fun normal mom next door
    she my favorite first lady ever-she’s no snobby elitist.

  • Gregory

    @heidi:

    Agreed. She’s a breath of fresh air. Very much like a normal persona and a normal mom. She’s not stuffy or snobbish like other First Ladies.

  • http://www.angelwings.com angel

    She’s been very active as the First Lady! I love the job that she’s doing, as well as the President. She looks great too!

  • henry

    I regret voting for Obama aka Hitler.

  • liberals

    One of the worst and no class First Lady. Her husband is going downhill so fast not even a year in office yet and already dimmed worst than Carter. They do nothing at the White House.

  • mimi

    The Obamas think they are some TV stars.
    They should get an Emmy on top of the Novel Peace.

  • meh

    Love her so much! Love that she’s honest and so real, and doesn’t spew PC bull about only eating healthy.

  • tina

    A belt is not a bra. A good thing to keep in mind.

  • linda lee

    oh no, she didn’t…….

  • Ashley

    if only her husband wasnt such a moron..

  • iron chef

    Laura is not AWOL she’s an active voice for kids,education and volunterism and especially visiting our troops.

  • haha

    The Obamas are ghetto even abusing Air Force One because they never have a taste of fine lifestyles unlike the Bush who are rich from the get go and always have been on the political scenes.
    Obama and Michelle does not even know proper etiquette greeting Kings and Queens but the liberal media ignores that.

  • wow

    As an independent voter..I have to say, some Republicans have become so pathetic..why are you trolling the internet attacking the first lady? Seriously? You people need to get a life already…your party rightfully lost…get over it and move on with your lives. The very same people who claim to hate this famility so much spend the majority of their time watching and reading about them..such losers.

    Also, to the few people in here who claim you regret voting for Obama…you never voted for him in the first place, I highly doubt anyone who voted for Obama would watch Fox News and say they tell the truth or call Obama “hitler”…again, go find new hobbies…you sound pathetic.

  • truth is

    President Obama and his wife their lifestyle now is the same with the former President in the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos. They were very good in partying. Emilda Marcos loves classy dress, jewelries, hairdo and the most well known her shoes. President Obama and President Marcos have almost the same character. They are both smart. They are both Lawyers. I will just hope that the way President Obama will run the country will not be the same as President Marcos did in the Philippines.

  • wow

    @ Ha ha

    The Queen of England adores Michelle. She is the one who reached out to her first…they say the Queen usually doesn’t do things like that. So try again. I guess maybe Presdient Obama should have given the Queen a back rub like Bush gave the German Chancellor Angela Merkel? I guess that would be more “classy” to you? Seriously..STFU!! Bush is proof you cant buy class…Michelle and President Obama’s education and and accomplishments far outscore your own…and thats what you are really mad about. How unfortounate for you.

  • coco

    I think she had a couple of long island ice teas and a few shots. It’s good that she ate so she does not get hung over.

  • mare

    Belt does not match at all. How can they call her a fashion icon.(Excuse me she does not dress herself? Same as Katie Holmes. they call her an icon when she does not dress herself and was only an icon when she got Money.

  • jessie

    love love love her outift… so edgy yet age appropriate
